I want to use xelatex to turn some latex source into a .pdf.
Unfortunately, xelatex tends to just output white space whenever it
encounters characters not in the default font, and does not
automatically fall back to other fonts (unlike text editors, or even the
The text is mostly latin, with a few cyrillic, chinese and farsi words
While I've read about the ucharclasses workaround, it seems to require
quite some knowledge of fonts to use, especially, if the various fonts
one has to use are meant to look good next to each other.
Does anyone have some simple solution that I can use to get xelatex to
process text correctly (preferably with latin rendered using the default
xelatex computer modern font, and the other scriopts rendered in
something that looks good when combined with the default font)? Maybe
some ten or twenty lines I could just paste into my document to get
xelatex to be able to handle text?
